Britney Spears Slapped In Face By Victor Wembanyama’s Security
Victor Wembanyama has officially become a member of the San Antonio Spurs. The highly-touted center from France showcased a diverse skill set and exceptional physical attributes, which made him the consensus favorite to go No.1.
The French standout has generated massive buzz in recent months. Now, both fans and pundits alike are eagerly anticipating his NBA debut in the upcoming season, curious to see if he can meet the high expectations and establish himself as a budding star, as the hype surrounding him suggests.
Ahead of the start of Las Vegas Summer League today, Wembanyama got the first glimpse of what it means to be a celebrity in the U.S. and immediately was included into some drama.
Members of the big man’s security slapped Britney Spears in the face. Per TMZ:
Britney Spears was allegedly assaulted Wednesday night in Vegas, after a member of NBA phenom Victor Wembanyama’s security backhanded her in the face, and she has filed a police report.
The incident went down at Catch restaurant in the ARIA Hotel around 8:30 PM. Britney, along with her husband, Sam Asghari, and 2 others went to the restaurant for dinner. She was swarmed by fans as she entered the casino.
Britney and co. walked over to Catch, and as they were entering the restaurant, Britney spotted Victor. We’re told she’s a fan and went over to him to ask if they could take a photo together. She tapped him on his back, right shoulder and, we’re told the Director of Team Security for the San Antonio Spurs — the team that drafted Victor last month — instantly backhanded her, causing her to fall to the ground … knocking her glasses off.
Britney composed herself and went to her table. We’re told the security guy came over to the table and apologized. He said, “You understand how it is when you’re being swarmed by fans.” He apologized and Britney accepted it.
Britney’s security team spent time with Victor’s security guy, and afterward her team filed a police report with the Metropolitan Police Dept. alleging battery.
